drive. But when the car drives off the road, the father and sons are now stuck in the cold wilderness and must find a way back to civilization... But slowly... The father goes CRAZY!!!

SCORES: 14/16 Good things. 2/16 Okay things. 0/116 Bad things.
I adored this movie. The acting was superb, the landscape mystical and frightening and the plot unusual with minimal progression and development and that is the main reason the story is so intriguing. The development of the main character, his journey into madness is fascinating. The tortuous, deep, disturbed and loving relationship with his kids will tear your heart apart. However there is no wicked villain here but just a man who is grown desperate and seriously ill. Even though there are some cross-references to the Oedipus complex and the sacrifice of the father this element is not <more>
overwhelming. What is more captivating is the desolation and despair caused by the inability of the father to fulfill the role that he is expected to and his lack of means to express his love and commitment to his kids. His anxiety and fears turn him into a psychotic killer. Whether he was already ill before the adventure in the snow is not explained clearly therefore any guess is the right one. Besides this is not very important.The action pace is good and the film will provide you with some good chills. There is no twist in this movie though and the thriller is more of a drama since it is quite clear where the plot is heading to from the very start. The final scene is award worthy both for the father's and younger kid's interpretation, it left me in tears. Unique!
Overall this story was very interesting, but it's definitely not a movie that will fit everyone's favorites list. If you're looking for a feel good movie this isn't it. The overall tone and plot of the movie is very serious and somewhat dark. It shows what lengths a father is willing to go to in order to protect and keep his children. The movie is very much so driven by its characters, it starts out slow but once you get a feel for the characters and what's going on it goes by like a bullet. The movie is fairly clean, no nudity, not a lot of violence, several F bombs but <more>
not constant and hardly any other profanities. minor drinking, nothing really notably "bad."Personally I loved this movie, I thought it had great acting, nice scenery, realistic dialogue and realistic motivations from the characters. If you haven't seen this it's definitely worth the watch.
The acting was superb. The plot was vague at times but I found that intriguing and it added to the suspense as it didn't follow a typical psycho killer format. There were clues in the plot that give possible answers to most of the questions as to why a poor example of a father could deteriorate into a delusional killer so quickly and I liked the ambiguity of that. The camera work was quite nice too. The location as desolate as the emotions, but still beautiful. Remarkable work by the two boys. Mr. Kinnamen's character so painful to watch. Frightening but believable. Well worth the <more>
watch, for an intimate look at failed parenting and trauma.
I expected this to be a typical movie about a bonding experience between an alienated father and sons, with a typical upbeat outcome. It turned out to be anything but. (by ronnoco28)
A recently fired ne'er do well loser of a Dad has his two teenage sons dropped off at his place by his ex and her new husband who are departing on a cruise. The older boy is a sullen, whiny klutz, and the younger one is a scatterbrained brat in other words, typical teenagers . None of them being very bright, the Dad decides to teach his kids how to shoot a rifle, and they drive up to a remote woods way out in the boondocks, even though a blizzard is coming on. The kids slowly drive their father insane actually, he surely had some serious mental problems to begin with , a succession of <more>
calamities occur, the Dad has a psychotic break, and horror ensues.Actually, not too bad a movie. It slowly draws you in, and you begin to understand the characters, who are fumblingly trying to connect with each other, and form a bond. The father-son & brotherly relationships are awkward but sincere. The ending comes quite suddenly and unexpectedly, and it isn't very pretty. The problems aren't resolved and there are a lot of loose ends, just as there always are in life. We all just have to keep on, and do the best we can.
Wow, this movie really caught me by surprise. I remember watching the preview and thinking "whatever". I couldn't really tell what it was about but I saw that Joel Kinnaman was in it so I had to at least see. My first experience with this guy was on "The Killing." Didn't like him or his character at first, but by the end of the series I got it. I remember rooting for him to make it big and then saw him on Robocop and some other big movies. I hope Hollywood doesn't ruin him. I'd like to see more of his "flawed hero" in the future. Could just be me, <more>
but I think I could see him doubting himself in certain scenes at the beginning of the movie that wasn't just the character. He needs more roles like these I think to get his chops around. Really, I think he has the potential to turn out some interesting characters given the chance. Now about the movie. Like I said, the beginning of the movie, I thought, came across a bit stiff. Maybe the dialogue, I don't know, people in real life act and say things all the time that I don't really understand why they'd say or do it that way. All the same it was okay. Then about half way through the movie I had to stand up and say, "Holy S--t!" From then on it was a nightmare for everyone involved. This movie took turns I did not see coming and I thought it was pretty realistic. Once it all fell apart I could see the insanity of the situation and it was scary. I've always been interested in how a parent can come to the conclusion to kill their own children. That doesn't happen here but the colors are there. I don't know if this movie is for everyone, probably not. I sure liked it though. I liked it a lot.
